"Anyone selling small amounts of items" Shopping Tip by dejafaux

Shopping, Florence: 13 reviews and 5 photos

In Florence, I cant tell you how many times I saw people selling small amounts of items, ie.. tripods for cameras, or the africans selling the fake purses.. as soon as they see the police, they pick up and move NOW, in fact, dont even LOOK at these bags or people or they will literally follow you.. the ones in the market place with the actual stands, those are fine to deal with, most are very honest. I bought a beautiful leather purse and a couple of souvenirs.

Address: Florence
